With great gusto we ordered a big list of seeds for the coming year. There are dreams of Rich Sweetness Melon, that bears fragrant small orange fruit, perfect for children's gardens, to be grown on trellises in our garden. Short growing season for this fruit is a big plus for us.
Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes. Of course, there are hundreds to select from. And they are easy to grow for saving seeds. Take a ripe perfect tomato, and break it in chunks. Place in a covered dish (to keep the fruit flies away) on the window seal. Let it ferment in its own juice, until some bubbles form and some mold appears. Wash in running water, taking care not to loose the seeds in the process. Dry on a towel and label. Open pollinated seeds allow you to do this, but hybridized seeds do not. Consider supporting Baker's Creek Heirloom Seeds this year. Happy dreaming!
